    Wheres Disney in that Pie chart?

    Also whos to say that none of the other movie companies could change their mind. I mean sure in all likelihood it probably wont happen, but you still have to give it some thought. Especially when you consider that there is nearly 1 million unhappy HD DVD customers in the USA alone. Link: http://www.thelookandsoundofperfect.com/_inc/hddvd/news/01-06-2008-CES2008.pdf

    Sure you can call it biased but for the most part what they say is true. HD DVD still has a long ways away from being dead. I still think that HD DVD will end up prevailing in this format war. This is just a very dark time in its life.
